If you hear or see lots of fun and positive vibrations coming out of the Queens Park this month, it’s probably from the All Ability Day – a celebration dedicated to International Day of People with Disability.

Drumming, karaoke, market stalls plus a photo booth are just some of the activities taking place for all to participate in and enjoy.

City of Greater Geraldton Mayor Shane Van Styn said the event would have good vibes galore.

“The All Ability Day was created to celebrate what makes us all unique, as part of International Day of People with Disability,” he said. 

“Last year’s event was diverse, inclusive and a whole lot of fun. It will be exactly the same this year and is free to attend.

“There are great activities and entertainment slated for the All Ability Day, so be sure to pop it in your calendar to celebrate with us.”

A free sausage sizzle, the Cape Burney Bushfire Brigade, Leaning Tree School’s Equine Animal Experience and Sky Box Studio will also be in attendance.

The All Ability Day and International Day of People with Disability are about creating more inclusive communities and challenging the way people think about disability.

Those interested in celebrating can attend the event between 3pm to 8pm on Friday 25 November at the QEII Seniors and Community Centre and Queens Park.

The All Ability Day is free to attend, and aligns with the City’s Strategic Community Plan of an enhanced lifestyle through spaces and programs that foster connection and inclusion.

The All Ability Day has been made possible thanks to support from APEX Geraldton, NDSP Plan Managers, Regional Alliance West, Rocky Bay, TAFE Geraldton, Midwest Support Coordinator Emily McCain, Cape Burney Bushfire Brigade as well as Sky Box Studio.
